Newest addition to the collection.

That looks nice. Myself I could not get on with those types of bracelets, they would pinch the hairs around my wrist. A nice leather strap with a stainless steel or chrome buckle will look nice. If you do decide to change make sure you remember where you keep the bracelet.

This is the newer version of the bracelet. You are thinking on the earlier folded link version, and yes, they can be "hair-eaters" if they are allowed to stretch and open up on the underside.

I have a C&I made folded link "rivet" bracelet on one of mine (it has been restored) and does not pull the hairs out. Very thin and light- almost like wearing on a leather strap actually.

The one shown above has solid links (possibly "hollow", but seamless center links) and they don't pull hair out.

Spot on!  They’re solid outer links with hollow, but seamless center links.  The only issue I can foresee is when the bracelet does develop more stretch there will be room to grab and pinch.  

I ended up ordering a dark brown smooth leather strap from DeBeer with polishes ss buckle.  I’ll post a pic when it gets in.

You know what?  I got the strap, put it on for about an hour and then reverted back to the bracelet.  Call me a purist, but I just couldn't...  I just couldn't keep it on there to save my life.  It looked good (sorry no pics - bummer I know), but I'll just save it for later when the bracelet wears to flimsy junk. 

And yes, happydude, I have entertained the idea a black croc strap.  Pics on google seem to make that option appealing also.  

Maybe I'll post a pic of it with the strap in place, but not installed.
